MONKEY MINI CHEF travels to Dubai and the Far East…

Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates known for luxury shopping, ultra-modern architecture and a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music. On artificial islands just offshore is Atlantis, The Palm, a resort with water and marine-animal parks.

1FIRST AID… Where we share tips and advice from St Johns Ambulance with parents

This week we are focusing on :Putting foreign objects in the nose or ear

Now that your baby is exploring the world around them, they will be interested in all the little things they find. They may also like to explore where they can put them, like up their nose or in their ear.

Objects can block the nose and, in some cases, cause infection. You might notice that your baby has difficult or noisy breathing, swelling of their nose or a smelly or blood-stained discharge from their nose.
Babies may also put objects in their ear, or insects may fly or crawl into the ear. If a foreign object gets lodged in the ear, it may cause temporary deafness by blocking the ear canal or in some cases it may damage the ear drum.

Next weeks menu will be : Week 2
